I am new to this forum so please forgive me in advance.
1. Is there a scripting program for InDesign like FrameScript for FrameMaker?
2. Is there a good location for finding plug-ins or other scripts?
Now what brings me here. Is there a script that will package a document and rename the artwork to the document name with appropriate numbers ### after it? or just rename the links?
Being new I created a document that linked artwrok files from some different folders. In my unbeleavable, ignorance I gave some of the artowrk files the same name. Shame on me. I should have made a master artwork folder from the get-go, but this was only a temporary, once in a blue moon, etc. deal.
As it is turning out, I am now the default "Crayon" for the company. I would like and easy way to fix a major problem.
Thank you in advance!

You can find out more at:
You can definitely do what you want to do with InDesign scripting.
when you execute Package command - InDesign will create new subfolder named Links and copy all linked files to this folder - and rename duplicated files by adding succesive numbers - this could be the easiest/fastest solution for you
